I had previously used wordpress to drive my blog in M1. I immediately figured I would use it on M2 as well. It was easy enough to do and it was one of the first things I installed/configured as it was important for me to get that information over to M2 as well. Upon my performance optimization, I realize that it may not be what I want. I got to thinking and realized that I really don’t need a powerhouse of a blog. I touched on this thought initially, but realized that it would be easy to get data out of wordpress into another blog option as they all support importing data from the WP database. I do realize that once I move to one of the below options that it will be harder to get back to wordpress if I ever decided to go that way and it will likely be more difficult to move to any other blog platform as well.
I’m just curious if there is an obvious standout in the crowd in the below options which seem to be the most obvious when searching around.
I am currently watching/reading your review on Mageplaza right now. It may make sense for me to go with them as I do already have MagePlaza baked in to Porto and I’m sure it would utilize some of the base/core modules instead of introducing a completely new vendor.
I think the most important aspects would be that it isn’t a “heavy” extension and good SEO. I’ve been reading and going over all of them for the last day or so. If I make a choice, I’ll post up and say why. Of course, each one has features a little different. It would seem if a feature was a deal breaker then the choice would be obvious. I don’t require a lot of features.
